Richard Beddingfield PhD Candidate

I am a in my third year as a PhD student and I am focusing on power electronics and high power, medium frequency magnetics. I have been with the FREEDM Center since 2011 as an undergraduate research scholar and continued into my Electric Power Systems Engineering Masters and PhD. During that time, I have built my passion for education and outreach through my involvement with the Student Leadership Council as well as various teaching opportunities opportunities through the University.

My Research Projects include:

  • Medium Voltage DC Amplifier Testbed
  • Low Voltage Solid State Stransformer
  • High Power Magnetic Materials Characterization
